My handsome, and incredibly talented, husband and I have been married for 10 ½ years, and we have 5 children- Emily (9), Hannah (8), Robby (6), Christopher (4), and Mallie (1). I LOVE my family, and I LOVE my life! I have wonderful parents who have taught and supported me all my life. I LOVE my Church, (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints)- it's teachings strengthen me, filling me with love and happiness, and have made me who I am today. :0)
I started digi-scrapping in October 2010, and I LOVE it! There's no mess. There's no ruined supplies. There's no mess! :0) There's just me, my 'puter, my pictures and my kits. I have dealt with depression and anxieties since I was a teenager, and I've found that scrapbooking helps me remember what I have and how grateful I am for all of it. It helps me keep things in perspective!
Besides scrapbooking, there are many other things that I enjoy doing: sewing, quilting, crafting, taking care of my lawn and flower beds, learning and doing new things, being self reliant, and, I love to have a clean house! Music is wonderful, and incredibly important in our home! My husband has an amazing voice, and plays the piano, guitar and a couple other instruments. I play the clarinet. And, my husband and I want our kids to each learn an instrument as well.
I LOVE being a stay-at-home mom. I wouldn't trade my time with my kids for anything! I am always striving to be a better mom. I see my faults plain as day, and I'm constantly praying for help in fixing them. I LOVE it when my children are happy- my boys have the funnest laughs ever! I can't help but laugh right along with them- which gets difficult when it's not the right time to laugh your head off! My daughters are wonderful examples to me- their sweet spirits and helpful attitudes! I don't know what I would do without my kids!
For the technical stuff, I use Photoshop CS4 (LOVE it!), and I have a Canon EOS Rebel T2i (and, again, LOVE it!). :0)
